  1. £7.99 at 50% off! eh, no.

    Oh, and please fix SyncKontrol, it’s been completely useless for almost a year now. I only have it on my phone so I know when it’s been updated – which appears to be never – it doesn’t work!

  2. Awesome! I love electribes. The R makes sense for payable devices. My dream is for Korg to make an electribe rack extension for reason, maybe the emx 1 ! I think the collaboration feature here is cool.

  3. Cool but it presumably doesn’t fit iPad screens properly yet, and if there’s no Gadget support then… eh?

    Really wish the real Ex-1 Electribes had displays and patch names like this does!

    1. Called “market saturation”
      they have gotten to a point where those who can afford already have one.
      Or course don’t forget “afford one”” in the recovered economy

  4. Where’s the universal version of iElectribe for those with the iPad version? 10$ with 50% is too much just for a new UI of the same app, you’re too greedy there Korg!
